Religion and Nation Iranian Local and Transitional Networks in Britain

£12.99

Product description

The estimated 75,000 Iranians who emigrated to Britain after the 1979 revolution and the establishment of the Islamic Republic and who are politically, religiously, socio-economically and ethnically heterogeneous, have found themselves placed in an ongoing process of settlement. The aim of this book is to explore facets of this process by examining the ways in which religious traditions and practices have been maintained, negotiated and rejected by Iranians from Muslim backgrounds in relation to the political, economic, and social situation in Iran and Britain, and have served as identity-building vehicles during the course of migration. While the ethnographic focus is on Iranians, this book touches on more general questions associated with the process of migration, transnational societies, and Diasporas, and religious as well as ethnic minorities.

This copy is in excellent condition. It is volume 15 in a series of Studies in Forced Migration
